of the big activities was the defense spending bill. what is the headlines coming out of that discussion? guest: the headline has to do with the national security agency. it was a very close vote. it shows how divided the house -200epresentatives, 217 five, to keep allowing the nsa to collect telephone records. host: explain it to those that are not following it closely. many: i don't imagine too people do not understand it. this is the national security agency that was found to be collecting phone calls. they are randomly collecting phone calls under court orders from a secret court. certainly a lot of people do not want to be listened to. this was all covered by edward snowden, now sitting in the moscow airport. to stop a vote to try this practice, which was authorized by congress as part of the patriot act after 9/11. host: the amendment did not survive? guest: it did not survive. it does not explain how that would happen. host: who supported this amendment and who opposed it? we saw a lot of things that you probably did not see before. we have liberal democrats who did not like the g
, the government, says yes. the defense says look at things like that video. it's all about embarrassing the government. manning was disillusioned with the war, he was troubled by what he saw like the matter in that video, and he wanted the public to know what was going on. that's the defense's case. the prosecution sees it very differently. >> is manning really looking at 136 years in prison, or in the end, could it really be a much shorter time? >> reporter: well, that would be the maximum. you know, there is an interesting wrinkle in that question, because the judge has already said she will knock off about 112 days off any sentence he gets because of the time he served at a military prison here in the washington area in which he was held in solitary confinement, stripped naked. the government again said that was because he was a suicide risk. the judge found suicide risk or not, that was not the correct or appropriate condition for him to be held in, so she's already going to take time off for that. i think the issue is the government will go for the maximum, and the defense will hav
. the clerk: a bill making appropriations for the department of defense for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2014, and for other purposes. the chair: when the committee of the whole rose on tuesday, july 23, 2013, amendment number 66 printed in house report 113- 170 offered by the gentlewoman from hawaii, ms. hanabusa, had been disposed of. pursuant to clause 6 of rule 12, proceedings will now resume on amendments printed in house report 113-170 on which further proceedings were postponed in the following order. amendment number 48 by mr. jones of north carolina. amendment number 51 by mr. lamalfa of california. amendment number 55 by mr. mulvaney of south carolina. amendment number 60 by mr. stockton of texas. amendment number 62 by mrs. walorski of indiana. amendment number 65 by ms. bonamici of oregon. the chair will reduce to two minutes the time for each electronic vote in this series. the unfinished business is the request for a recorded vote on amendment number 48 printed in house report 113-170 offered by mr. the gentleman from north carolina, mr. jones, on which further proceedi
by political asylum. there is a complete defense for whistle blowers to criminality. think about it. the people who expose the milan massac massacre, should they have been prosecuted. auschwitz, should that person have been prosecuted? >> david, i'd love to get your thoughts on this. the debate over whether or not lives have been harmed is still very a raging debate. a lot of people would argue the other side of that. >> one thing that bradley manning did was he didn't leak documents on a given one of these things, you know, that michael just went through was a major dump that had what some people depending where they sit, good leaks and bad leaks. to me, it's very troubling that he would be prosecuted under the espionage act even though he was let off on the aiding and abetting the enemy, which i thought was ridiculous, is this really espionage. if you look at the washington post, they have a great chart this morning, 20 odd different counts. michael i'm sure is familiar with all of them. only a few espionage. there were others about leaking classified information, violating regulations, thing
. the secretary of defense does not seem like he is too torn up over drastic cuts to our nation's military budget. general jackies joins us to assess the impact. lou: in lou: in breaking news tonight, to new developments in the house of representatives. moments ago lawmakers passed the senate approved a plan to lower loan interest rates for college students nationwide. the house voted 392-31 on a bill that sets interest rates on the ten year treasury note plus a cap. that bill now headed to the white house where the president has already said he will sign into law. the house of representatives also approving new tougher sanctions against iran. that vote 400-20. defense secretary jack hegel today says he is not as he put it crying wolf about sequester cuts. he laid out how the pentagon planning for what could be the smallest army since before world war ii will look like. >> if these abrupt cuts remain we risk fielding a force that over the next two years is unprepared to to a lack of training, may nice, and the latest equipment. cuts on this scale would in effect be a decade-long modernization hol
a travesty. >> mid win, if you are the defense, what do you do to separate this son from this father? >> what i would do is focus on the son and build him up as a person, and get the jury to understand what kind of person this man is. he's a young person, and i think jury oftentimes feel several thinkic for a defendant who is really, really young. i found that tape to be shocking, saying he doesn't understand why people are so persistent that this is a murder. i think it's the best way to try this case. >> it was chilling to hear the father talk about that like that. joshua young is 17 years old right now. he was 15 when the murder was committed. his appearance, he does seem so incredibly young. that is what the jury will be looking at. a very young man, but how much of the father will they see in the trial? how much of that other image, heather, is likely to get into their heads? >> that's what the prosecution is going to have to do. plaintiffs a suppression hearing to keep out of the some of the statements of josh young. it would be interesting if he admitted to some participation, it will
: we are just hours away from a sentencing hearing, on wednesday morning, where defense and prosecutors will argue of over what is an appropriate sentence. the judge could decide to let the charges run concurrently or string them out, and come up with a number of years that manning will serve. erin? >> that number of years so important. thank you very much, chris. >>> republican congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee and the house intelligence committee. good to see you, sir, as always. >> thank you. >> are you happy, dispointed? what word would you use? >> i'm gratified that he was convicted on five counts of espionage, plus the other theft counts. this is a serious, serious crime. and five counts, that should have a very, very significant prison sentence and hopefully it will be deterrent to other people such as bradley manning or edward snowden, that type of individual that blooechls they can disclose national secrets. >> so, the essentisentencinsent this court-martial is going to start tomorrow. he could get up to 136 years. what is the appropriate
in a strong national defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time.
to decide his sentence. i was told a short time ago in today's hearing prosecutors and defense attorneys have gone back and forth on the expertise of a general who is a military official and that person may be testifying on the damage to national security. >> on the point the head of wikileaks has weighed in on the damage caused by manning's leaks. >> there's been no accusation that anyone was come to any harm as a result of his leaks. investigation, prosecution for tor chture have taken place bece of the leaks. >> thanks very much. bryaned to reporting for us. >>> sleeping on the job and stealing from passengers. damaging new report against the tsa. the same agency charged with keeping us safe.

as per the holder investigation, his defense of you lied in speaking with congress, his defense is oh, i just lied to a judge in saying that rosen was a perspective criminal suspect. that's a hell of a defense if you are a attorney general of the united states. he ought to be under the bus, but there is no chance. is he too much of a friend of the president. that's what saves you in this administration. probaty doesn't. >> bret: more on this and politics we talked about in the beginning of the show and online show coming up in just a bit. that's it for the panel. stay tuned to see a little girl caught red-handed and her brother caught white-faced. we will explain all of this. mom always got good nutrition to taste great. she was a picky eater. we now i'm her dietitian... ...anlast year, she wasn'tating so well. so i recommended boost complete nutritional drink to help her get the nutrition she was missing. and now she drinks it every day. well, it tastes great!

to the public and under oath, and he abused his pow other, and so, at least wiener has a defense that he didn't abuse his power as a congressman to try to cover up the scandal. >> kiki, a lot of interest in the scandal has to do with her connection to hillary clinton. that's the way it is. you can't ignore it. when you listen to what hillary clinton said about her husband's scandal versus what she said about anthony wiener, there are similarities. here they are. >> i think it's real dangerous in this country if we don't have some zone of privacy for everybody. >> i do very strongly believe that that is between us and our marriage. >> i'm sitting here, because i love him, and i respect him, and i honor what he's been through and what we've been through together. >> i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. and as we have said through the beginning, we are moving forward. >> how does replaying that specific moment of hillary and bill clinton, which frankly a lot of people have forgotten -- that moment on the couch -- how does that not hurt hillary clinton? >> look, the reality is what
christie. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start looking at cutting the pork barrel spending he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every $1 and not look at new jersey, where we get 61 cents for every dollar, maybe senator paul could, you know, deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side, but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> what did you think of that? >> well just not true. i don't vote to bring home any bacon because i told the people of kentucky when i ran for office there wasn't any money up here and i would try to vote to keep more of their money in kentucky by lowering their taxes but i wasn't bringing anything home because we were $1 trillion short. governor christie can't point to any votes that i've ever voted to bring pork barrel projects to any state. i do work to try to bring money home from overseas and use it here at home but really it's just not accurate.
information to the website wikileaks. the founder julian assange came to his defense. >> it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it if it is left to stand. >> he is talking about getting behind an appeal of this. prosecutors will be presenting evidence today on just how much damage manning's leaks caused the u.s. government. that could play into how much time he'll serve. we will have more on this story coming up a little later in this hour. for his small business. take these bags to room 12 please.

enrollment fees the house armed services committee, of which i'm a member, and other defense committees have declined to grant the authority for these fee increases. my amendment would do nothing more than ensure that the fund in this fact are not made available to implement any new enrollment fees in the tricare for life program. year after year we hear from the defense department that health care costs of our soldiers and veterans are spiraling out of control and tricare is crippling the d.o.d. with its rising costs yet for the past two dwhreerks pentagon has found a way to reprogram hundreds of millions of dollars from defense health accounts to higher priorities. these reprogramming actions totaled $70 million last career in 2012, and $500 million in the -- in the prior year in 2011. explained that the surplus was due to uncertainty about medical installation and health care use and the impact of continual benefit changes and efficiency initiatives. if there is uncertainty about costs, the assertion cannot be made that added fees are necessary for even our most senior veterans. d.o.d.'s
at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do
stroked. but the sequester cuts, half of them come out of the defense budget. idea when the sequester was conceived was that it was supposed to be so terrible for both the right and the left that it could never be allowed to become law. then the compromise was struck, was no, nobody can come up with anything they like better so we'll let it become law and that's acceptable to a lot of people on the hill but it is really unacceptable to john mccain. both he and the president would really like to come up with a deal to replace the sequester and it's given him an incentive to cozy up to democrats. and work with some people like lindsey graham. >> which "cozy up," we mean talk to. i think we allow ourselves to be hijacked by this narrative that you are cozying up to narratives if you are talking to the white house about matters of national import. >> it is not just talking. the end game for mccain is to come up with a big fiscal deal that does things that conservatives would really dislike because it would unwind part of the sequester. mccain i think cares much less about the total size o
a robust defense overseas and intervene in places. >> exactly. >> bill: cleaned up like afghanistan. so christie is for that that's a traditional republican tradition where is paul is against it. so, some might say though this is healthy, to have this in the republican party to kind of shake it out because they are going to have a fight on their hands to defeat hillary clinton in 2006. -- 2016. >> that's right. if hillary clinton runs she will be associated with these obama policies that have given some -- a number, in fact, in the democratic party real pause. so, what's interesting about this is this is a problem that both parties are having simultaneously. i think the republicans probably need to have this out. and decide what kind of a party they want to be. >> bill: that's right. >> it looks like they are well on heir way to doing that. >> bill: brit, thank you. as the factor moves along this evening. we will report on a new bill to stop paying accused terrorist nidal hasan. jeanine pirro has some thoughts on that. then, bernie goldberg on president obama saying the scandals in wash
are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people who are making us weak in defense. >> in fact, chris christie's new jersey pays much more into the federal government through taxation than it gets back in federal spending. for every dollar in tax revenue that new jersey sends to washington it gets back only 77 cents. where does the 23 cents go? to rand paul's kentucky and other states. think of them as the gimme states, if you will, who take much more from the federal government than they ever pay for in federal tax revenue. for every dollar rand paul's kentucky sends to washington kentucky gets back $1.57. chris christie might be seeking the electoral votes of rand paul's gimme gimme state someday. so he will probably use a different line of defense against rand paul's gimme gimme gimme nonsense. joining me now, steve mcmahon, veteran democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies. steve, who are you betting on in this fight? >> i love it. i hope they go and they fight to a draw an
line of defense against rand paul's give me, give me, give me nonsense. i was so wrong. not about the dollars and cents. but about chris christie. he went there today. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he is going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start to cut the pork barrel defense he sends home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollars and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents per dollar, maybe he should look at that before he looks at the federal side. because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon. >> and rand paul foolishly talked about bacon. >> this is the king of bacon, we have two military bases in kentucky. and is governor chris christie recommending we shut down the military bases? he wants to be this great champion of the military? what does he want to do, shut down the military bases? he is making a big mistake fighting with the republicans, because the republican party is shrinking there on the east coast, attacking me is not helping the party, he is hurting the party. >> two military bases in kentucky,
. we do really think that the federal government, it's first priority is defense of this nation. most people think this sequester is not good for our military. how can we substitute some other spending cuts in lower priority areas so we can reinterject those dollars into the military so we don't hollow out our military. >> speaking of common ground, yesterday, the president laid out what the white house is calling a new grand barring gab well as investing in infrastructure and jobs. you have supported some of those things in the past. where do you come down on his plan? >> he's got a framework out there so we'll have to see the details. he's acknowledging we have problems. we have an uncompetitive corporate tax rate that is really stymieing investment. really disincentivizing investment into jobs and business expansion here. we've got at least 1 trillion$1 if not 2trillion of corporate income basically parked overseas. our interstate highway system, we've seen bridges collapse, so we probably do need to spend money on infrastructure. the president got his package that was supposed to
's the issue. >> tony, turning to a slightly different topic, i want to talk about money. secretary of defense hagel was out today talking about the pentagon budget cuts. let's take a listen. >> if sequester-level cuts persist, dod would experience nearly $1 trillion in defense spending reductions over the next ten years. to help dod balance strategic ends, ways, and means under these budget scenarios, the strategic choice of the management review scrutinized every aspect of dod's budget. everything was on the table. >> so, what does this all this mean for what we're doing in afghanistan going forward and our presence there? >> within the past week, there's been a bipartisan, much like the amash vote on nsa. there's been a real moving back towards reducing the funding for afghanistan. now, general dunford is doing his best with the commander of forces there. he's now debating about what we should do in 2014. with that said, he will have a reduced budget no matter what. and i think, frankly, that's the way to go for the most part. we have to be very careful on these choices. on the larger scale
that could discredit a key witness who helped convict ingmar guandique of levy's death. defense attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial based on the information. levy's 2001 disappearance became international news after she was romantically linked with then- modesto rep. gary condit. eight people, including three children, were injured after an explosion shook this south philadelphia neighborhood late saturday morning. one home was destroyed and two others were heavily damaged. neighbors pitched in to help rescue those inside the homes. witnesses explains what happened. >>:"i saw the whole house was down. i saw the house next to it was falling over. i saw firemen. this dude was burnt up. they were hosing him down with the fire hose." "he was running out of the house with burn marks from head to toe. he was bleeding from his side and he was just asking for help." after more than an hour of searching, rescuers determined no one else was trapped under the rubble. fire officials confirming it was a natural gas explosion. and their search for a cause now centers on work being do

defenses, don't you think this is something that we can pour not only in defense but other areas as well? i believe it is. texas can switch to a p.b.m. contract. this is no chump change. y time draws to a close, the challenges facing independent and community pharmacist are great, but the important roles they play are greater. it is where we can look forward to solutions that matter. i did not come to washington, d.c. simply to watch things happen and to wonder why. i came to be part of the solution. like you, mr. speaker, we are part of the freshman class believing that this is the place that people look for to make this country continually the greatest country on earth. and the way they do that is look at commonsense legislation. they look at commonsense solutions that affect them every day. for many, many people. and especially in my home of northeast georgia. place.harmacies is a they are the places where senior citizens come and as i have watched many times the pharmacies where i go to, my own or not, it is the pharmacies where i watched the other day, where i went in and a sweet littl
. budgetary time of austerity, w.i.c. was included in the across-the-board cuts in defense and discretionary programs under sequester. snap was excluded because it's a entitlement like social security and medicare. but w.i.c. was included in the sequester because it is an sniment. as if the cuts in sequester weren't bad enough, the house agriculture appropriations bill now cuts the program even further by more than $500 million. the 7.3% cut to w.i.c. in this bill could result in over 200,000 pregnant mothers and infants losing nutritious food. even factoring in the reserve fund, 55,000 moms and kids will go without nutrition that they need. it is sad that the republican-controlled house of representatives is cutting vital health and development programs for pregnant and nursing mothers and their very young children, while at the same time they find billions of dollars to send overseas in a wasteful war in afghanistan. madam speaker, during my series of end hunger now speeches, there's been one unifying theme i believe puts us on the path to end hunger now. that theme is presidential leaders
defense -- quadrennial defense review produced by the department of defense concluded that climate change will affect the military and its missions, in particular low lying naval institutions such as pearl harbor hickham that could leave parts of the base flooded requiring millions of dollars in costly upgrades. with the united states rebalancing to the asian pacific region, sustaining our naval capabilities will be increasingly important for hawaii and for our nation. i know that the senator from rhode island has concerns about his own state and i yield to him. mr. whitehouse: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: as the senator from hawaii said it's not just hawaii, it's not just rhode island actually, it is all of our states that will be affected. dr. lynen who testified at our e.p.w. hearing is from florida atlantic university and she highlighted 0-sensitive florida will be to climate change. in her testimony she said the caribbean florida region has shown sea surface temperatures increase about two degrees fahrenheit per decade. concurre
but indicated i've been honest throughout this entire process. his main defense has just been sort of that we're all fixated on this date of resignation from congress but that wasn't actually important to him and his wife and their sort of internal process. >> bill: what's he been doing for the last couple of days, just out there campaigning faiz nothing happened? >> yeah. he's had a public schedule. he's done events. you know i'm sure he's eager to move back to policy. what's said when he initially took off in may was you know, okay, i'm going to answer some questions. but i want to focus on issues. but i think this time it is a little bit different in that sort of -- he answered some questions about the scandal. it dissipated. frankly, he's become a regular candidate. and now questions about why frankly on the timeline here. >> bill: what do you hear from people that you're talking to? people in the street. i saw one poll late yesterday that showed him still up a couple of points. what are the readings? >> well, you know, as far as the poll numbers go, we're not really going to have an indi
, saying last week that he found s&p's puffery defense to be -- quote -- "deeply and unavoidably troubling." s&p's rationale should strike us all as deeply and unavoidably troubling because their legal defense -- this is s&p's legal defense -- says that no one could possibly rely on their ratings. but that was their job, to provide independent, objective, accurate ratings. millions of americans lost their jobs because s&p didn't do its job. they didn't -- s&p didn't do their one job. they have one job -- to provide accurate ratings. they didn't do their one job. they have no other job. i'm glad the department of justice is pursuing this case. but d.o.j.'s action is not enough. it is backward-looking, and it addresses past hamplet harms. my concern is that -- the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mr. franken: i would ask for about five more minutes. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. franken: thank you. thank you. i'm glad the d.o.j. case is going forward. but, as said, it is not enough. it is backward-looking and addresses past harms. my concern is that the cond
